Troon paedophile pensioner filmed 10-year-old girl in the toilet and forced her to wear adult underwear

A paedophile pensioner who filmed a 10-year-old girl in the toilet and forced her to wear adult underwear has been jailed.

Disgusting Robert Daly Sinclair, who lived in Troon sheltered housing sexually abused the child over a number of years while she was under 13

Sheriff Desmond Leslie blasted the pervert over his “sexual obsession” with the young girl on Monday this week at Ayr Sheriff Court.

He added him to the sex offenders register for 10 years and jailed him for eight months

The 65-year-old pervert, of Millrock Court, admitted placing a camera in a bathroom and recording the child on the toilet between December 1, 2012 and January 31, 2013 at a Troon address.

He also pled guilty to making her wear underwear, running his fingers around the lingerie and touching her chest between January 1 and March 1, 2013 at the same home.

The abuse continued at a Girvan caravan park where he caused her to look at a tablet showing naked men and women involved in sex acts between March 1 and April 30 of that year.

Sick Daly Sinclair again made her look at photographs of naked men and women involved in sexual behaviour between December 1, 2013 and January 31, 2014 at another Troon home.

And last year between October 1 and 31, he tried to force her to wear underwear belonging to a woman at the same property.

On jailing him, Sheriff Leslie said: “Offences of this character generally if not uniquely appear on a procecedure that would allow me greater latitude in sentencing

“The only way I can deal with this is the deposition of a custodial sentence.”

Daly Sinclair had entered the dock without a bag.

But a social worker fetched his holdall and passed it to him as he was handcuffed and led downstairs to prison.

Man carried out sex assaults at addresses in Troon and Girvan

A pervert from Troon who sexually assaulted a 13-year-old girl has been caged.

Robert Sinclair, 65, admitted carrying out various acts of a sexual nature towards the child between 2012 and 2016 at addresses in Troon and other locations.

Between December 1, 2012 and January 31, 2013 Sinclair placed a video recorder in the bathroom and recorded the girl using the toilet so he could watch.

Between January 1, 2013 and March 1, 2013 he provided her with underwear, induced her wear them, show him and run his fingers around her underwear and over her body.

When visiting Byne Hill Caravan Park in Girvan, between March 1, 2013 and April 30, 2013, Sinclair forced her to look at a tablet which was showing a video of naked adult men and women engaging in sexual behaviour.

At an address in Troon, he also showed the girl still images of adults engaging in sexual acts between December 1, 2013 and December 31, 2014.

In October last year Sinclair acted in an abusive manner and attempted to induce the girl into wearing underwear which belonged to a woman.

Sinclair appeared before Sheriff Desmond Leslie at Ayr Sheriff Court this morning (Tuesday). 

Addressing the dock, Sheriff Leslie, said: “Offences of this character would usually appear in a procedure which would allow me to sentence you for longer than I can.

“I am surprised this has appeared as a summary case but it has. You pleaded guilty at the intermediate diet which meant this case did not have to go to trial.

“You will be on the sex offenders register for 10 years.”
Sinclair has been jailed for eight months.
